It's Been Too Long

It's been too long since my last post..I am hoping to get into the habit of "visiting" or "sharing" on here more often. My facebook page Fitnessmom is doing very well and I could not  be happier. If even half of the followers on the page are actually reading and paying attention to my so called "words of wisdom" then I am successful.  Now I am hoping to capture the attention of fellow bloggers "peeps" out here:)

We are two weeks away from Thanksgiving - and it all begins, the start of the emotional roller-coaster.  Families either flying or driving from afar, staying with us or at hotels.  Trying to find time to take care of kids, homework, activities, work (for some) , thinking about maybe getting the house together, the menu together and all of the family drama that goes along with this wonderful holiday..and let's not forget the fact that this time of year can cause many of us to totally and completely fall of the "health and fitness" wagon.  This is where Fitnessmom comes in.  I am the first person to admit how easy it is to pull open that tub of sour cream and add that onion pack to go with those wavy chips, I am the first to admit how tempting it is to hit every aisle in the market that is decorated with all the holiday food items.  You know the one's, the baked goods, or the boxes of bake from home items.  Of course they make everything in the aisles look so tasty and pretty and colorful, and this time of year, the stores put all of it on some kind of special, so if you "buy one, you get one", etc..

Well, listen up peeps..if we don't have the will power now, it is only going to get worse (we still have December to get through).  Who says or who ever said that we had to buy all this food? That we had to bake all the pies, cakes, cookies, etc..? Did someone put a "Holiday Food Law" in place? 

We need to be smart and really get on the path of eating properly and healthy, yes even during holiday I am not saying don't enjoy ourselves, but be smart about it.  Starting now and continuing  through the next two weeks is a perfect time to get mentally prepared to take charge of what we are going to be putting into our bodies and just as importantly, how much.  We can enjoy this season and we can enjoy it in a good way...More to come, we have a lot of work to do...:)

Is this working? Testing.... yay, I got the blog up and the first post done, so ever since I have not been able to turn my head off...I have sooo much I want to share and say, I just don't want to go completely overboard...I know that Fitnessmom (facebook page) started and seems to be a hit...also the talk about health and fitness is great, but with Fitnessmomwinecountry blog...I think I might take it a step further, may a little deeper at times...Of course the focus is on the obvious, but sharing stories relating to day events or whatnot could very well become part of this page...after all think about it...Health, fitness, exercise, regimine, food, well being, mind, body, soul, all falls into the same category - right? I am still working the kinks out on this blog...I have no idea how to "share" (I did post on facebook) but am stuck...unless the few followers I have been able to pick up knows how to do that or wants to give info...then it could be a while before we get "her" out and amongst the peeps....okay for now..I will be back...:)
